Communicating with families is key to helping students thrive – and that’s become even more apparent during a pandemic that’s upended student well-being and forced constant logistical changes in schools.

Educators should pay particular attention to the needs of parents who speak a language other than English at home, ensuring they stay informed and feel comfortable engaging in the school setting.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss concrete ways schools and districts can improve communication with families of English-language learners, including through alternate staffing approaches and smart use of technology.
